"When Freedom of Speech Takes on a Whole Different Meaning"
One of my dear friends that I grew up with in the 70's and 80's, Mr. Wayne
Cardoza has been battling a rare cancer of the tongue for the past few years.
With the prognosis turning grim, the doctors had no choice but to remove and rebuild a new tongue. The surgery may have been called radical twenty years ago but today the technology can be called a small miracle. The "all day"
procedure was also very expensive. At this posting I can report the Wayne is feeling tingling in his new tongue and can legibly pronounce words. The doctors say they have removed all of the cancerous areas and we will all pray they are right on this one.
Friends and family here on the Northcoast are putting on an all day extravaganza to include dinner, live music and dancing, a silent auction and raffle of many fine gifts and services donated by this local community, including business leaders, craftsmen, (or is that craftpersons?), and many who don't even know Wayne and his family. This nobel cause is to help in deferring the cost of Wayne's surgery and to assist in his road to full recovery.
